Softly-scrambled eggs, country bread and a golden, crumbly Danish pastry are some of the things Bon Appétit's deputy editor Julia Kramer raved about in her review of Detroit's Ochre Bakery. 

The food magazine put the new Detroit cafe at number four on their list of the Hot Ten: America's Best New Restaurants of 2019.

Last week Bon Appétit released a list of their 50 nominees nationwide, which included Ochre Bakery in the Core City neighborhood and Eastern Market's Warda Pâtisserie. This week the final 10 names were announced. 

"I’m getting lost in the idea that I could live in Detroit and this could be my coffee shop and I could eat this Danish every morning," writes Kramer, who recommends getting one of everything from the pastry case to-go, plus a loaf of bread. 

The magazine also featured several recipes from the Detroit bakery, including their lemon-pistachio loaf. 

Ochre Bakery, 4884 Grand River in Detroit, is owned by Jessica Hicks and Daisuke Hughes, the team behind Astro Coffee in Corktown. Ochre is open 8 a.m.-4 p.m.Tues.-Sun. Call (313) 686-5694 or visit
